Book Review - A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard
This is the memoir written by Jaycee Dugard, the woman that was kidnapped and found after 18years. It talks of the day she was kidnapped, much of her life while in captivity, and of her rescue. The book was very good. There were things in there I expected and then things I never event thought of or can wrap my brain around that she endured. 18 years. 18 YEARS. 2 kids with her rapist. Imagine just being a typical kid at 12 one day and 2 years later you've been a sex slave all that time and are having to let that very man assist you in a homebirth and age 14!
Jaycee does a good job of addressing I think most of what people want to know and understand. Parts are hard to read due to the subject matter, but it isn't to graphic nor drawn out to much. You can just can really not believe what this girl/woman had to go through and I hope she is doing as good as she sounds like she is today.
